The early detection of a gynaecological cancer recurrence is important in order to institute early treatment. Numerous imaging techniques have been used to follow up patients after treatment of gynaecological malignancies. These include plain X-rays, ultrasound, CT scan, MRI scan and PET or PET/CT scans.
